How much does it cost to have a car detailed?

Does it usually cost a lot to have a car detailed? I'm thinking about getting my wife's car detailed as a little Christmas surprise, but I also want to save up for a nice present.

A newly detailed car can feel fresh and luxurious. Luckily, it isn’t too expensive! A basic car detailing will cost between $50 to $125 for an average-sized car. But if your wife drives a van or SUV, it might cost closer to $75 to $150. That might sound a little pricey, but as a part of the basic detailing they’ll:
  • Wash your exterior.
  • Wax the exterior.
  • Vacuum the interior.
  • Polish the interior.
  • Wash all the windows (inside and out).
  • Clean the mirror and trim.
  • Clean the tires.
If you’d like them to do a little more, you can usually pay a little extra for an upgraded package. For exact rates, talk to your local detailer. If it’s too much, you could always clean it yourself!
If detailing the car still sounds too expensive, you can offset the price by saving on car insurance with Jerry.
